Probably the best concordance on the market

The Strongest Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2001. ISBN 0310259088. Please note: the ISBN given is for the REGULAR PRINT version, not the large print. The concordance is the most basic tool of Bible study, aside from the Bible itself. It has two primary uses: finding verses and doing word studies. The first use is pretty simple: you know a word or two of a verse but you can't remember where to find it. So you look up the word in the concordance, which lists the most common verses in the Bible which contain that word, and choose the right one. (A concordance which calls itself "exhaustive" lists every single verse in the Bible containing a particular word.) The second use is more complicated. Let's say you want to know about how the Bible uses the word "song." First, take the concordance and look up the English. Under the headword "song" are three columns: the first with the book and verse number, the second with a brief excerpt from the verse, the third with a four-digit number. It looks something like this: Ex 15:1 the children of Israel this s unto 7892 Ex 15:2 The Lord is my strength and s, and he is 2176 ~ Rev 5:9 And they sung a new s, saying, Thou art 5603 And the list goes on. The number stands for the Hebrew or Greek word which was translated by the English word "song." In the back of your concordance are very short Hebrew and Greek dictionaries; if the verse is in the Old Testament, look it up in the Hebrew dictionary; if the verse is in the New Testament, look it up in the Greek one. Using the list above, we find that 7892 is the Hebrew word "shir"; 2176 is the Hebrew word "zimrat"; and 5603 is the Greek word "ode." After you read the definitions, you'll know more about the word "song" as used in the Bible. Now for this particular concordance, which Zondervan somewhat pompously calls "The Strongest Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible," by James Strong, LL.D., S.T.D.; Fully Revised and Corrected by John R. Kohlenberger III and James A. Swanson." The windiness of the title and the deplorable pun, however, do not detract from its immense usefulness it includes not only the exhaustive concordance itself, but revised Hebrew and Greek dictionaries, Nave's Topical Bible, and "Additional Features," which include a Hebrew calendar, a Harmony of the Gospels, Messianic Prophecies, a chart of Jesus' parables, and a chronology of Bible events. The cover says that this concordance is "The only Strong's compiled and verified by computer technology." That's nice, but it probably won't make that much difference to the average user. Be warned: it means what it says about "exhaustive." The "Index of Articles, Conjunctions, Particles, Prepositions, and Pronouns," which immediately follows the main body of the concordance, informs us that the conjunction "and" appears exactly 51,713 times in the KJV. Every single word of the Bible is in this con

I Wouldn't Be Without This Concordance

In my opinion "The "Strong's Concordance" is the best concordance on the market. It works best with either the "King James" or "New King James" Versions of the Bible. Loving to stday Scripture and write I have many referance books. I use my "Strong's Concordance" and my "American Dictionary of the Enligh Language: Noah Webster's 1828 Edition" more than all the rest of my referance books put together. The Concordance's Greek and Hebrew Dictionary's are a faantastic aid to Scripture study. Along with my 1928 Webster's Dictionary, I use them constantly.The "Strongest Strongs" is the edition I own and highly recommend.

Still the best - reflects current scholarship

How do you improve on the most exhaustive King James concordance in existence? John R. Kohlenberger III and James A. Swanson took on this task and have made several improvements. The first thing they did was to fix several minor errors in previous versions. Then they included words that were italicized in the Cambridge King James Version. This is important because these represent words that were not in the original text but were supplied in translation to help the reader understand the text. Finally, they computer verified the accuracy of the text. Because of this they state that this is the most accurate Strong's concordance to ever be published. Really nice features include sensitivity to translational problems such as the need to sometimes use multiple words to translate a single word because the destination language doesn't contain a similar word. Because of this problem these multiple words are included as a set and matched against the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek word. The Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek dictionaries have also been updated from previous editions to reflect current Biblical scholarship. At the back of the book are some additional reference materials that are pretty unusual for a concordance. These materials include things like a Hebrew calendar, sacred days listing, weights and measures information, and a harmony of the gospels. Still the best King James concordance available and the best value for your money The Strongest Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible is highly recommended. I've read some of the reviews here that indicate problems with this concordance including the one that complains that it does not have the reference to Luke in Philemon 1:24. Please take the time to note that this is a concordance of the King James Version and so it says Lucas and not Luke in that passage, etc.

Great Concordance!

BOOK REVIEW:A concordance is like an index; you look up a word, and it will tell you where that word can be found. For example, if you were to look up Jesus in a biblical concordance, the concordance will give you the passages (e.g. Mt 1:1) where the word can be found."The Strongest Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible" is a really great concordance! In the concordance, you will find many neat things; some of them include- "A Brief History of the Strongest Strong's Exhaustive Concordance Project" in the preface- An introduction that talks about James Strong and concordances in general; improvements made in this concordance from the previous concordance; and the features of this concordance; and a separate, but with more details than the one included in the features of the concordance included in the introduction, page on the "Features of the Main Concordance".The book is thick and there are many passages included in the concordance. What I really like about this concordance is that the passages that contain the words of Jesus Christ are highlighted in gray. Also, the concordance has "Nave's Topical Bible Reference System" (without the biblical text).Other features include:- "Weights, Lengths adn Measures of the Bible"- Hebrew-Armaic to English and Greek to English dictionaries- "Chronology of the Bible"- Maps- Indexes to "Major Social Concerns of the Mosaic Covenant", "Old Testament Sacrifices", "Hebrew Calendar", "Hebrew Feasts and Holy Days", "Kings of the Bible", "Harmony of the Gospels", "Prophecies of the Messiah Fulfilled in Jesus", "Parables of Jesus", and "Miracles of Jesus".The only thing I don't like about the concordance is the pages. The pages are very thin--it seems like they can be wrinkled very easily and the printing from the previous/following pages shows through the page.Overall, the concordance is very good.
